US Trade Representative Meeting on ACTA in Washington DC (Sept. 22)

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the Department of Commerce announced Sept. 5 that USTR and Commerce are organizing a public meeting to consult with interested parties on the negotiation of an Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (73 Fed. Reg. 51,860 (Sept. 5, 2008)).

The meeting is aimed at receiving comments from stakeholders regarding this initiative.
